Fresh skincare products have been a regular part of my skincare routine for daily need of my skin as well as those weekly go-to top-ups for the skin like masks, exfoliators. I have been really enjoying the new launches from the brand which are all about glow and protection against pollution and free radicals. I have been using the Black Tea Kombucha Facial Treatment Essence and two new launches for the Vitamin Nectar range of the brand, called Vitamin Nectar Vitamin C Glow Powder and Vitamin Nectar Antioxidant Glow Water.
Kombucha, if you are not aware, is a fermented sweet black tea rich in vitamins and organic acids produced through the fermentation process. Black Tea Kombucha Facial Treatment Essence is described to protect against pollution to help prevent premature fine lines, it is a fast absorbing liquid formula which provides below benefits:
- Provides Anti-Pollution & antioxidant protection
- Enhances Skin Luminosity
- Reduces the look of fine lines
- Refines the look of pores
- Improves elasticity
- Smoothes Skin Texture
- Boosts Skin’s Healthy tone
- Provides 24-hour moisture
The key ingredient of this essence, Kombucha is fermented black tea which helps to smooth, increase luminosity, and protect against pollution and free radicals. A drink dating back to ancient times, kombucha was historically known in Asia and Russia to promote good health and longevity with its toning and detoxifying properties. the hyaluronic acid works to attract and seal in moisture for supple skin.
I have been using this essence for over two months as I feel the need for it. while using it, I do feel it has improved my skin tone and overall look of my skin, it looks healthy and refined. I do not use it twice but mostly once a day either in the day or in the night after cleansing my face. I am pretty sure I would be fine to use it twice a day in the winters. I put few drops on the cotton pad and apply over face, neck and decollete avoiding the eye area. It feels a little sticky at first but absorbs nicely into the skin with feeling any stickiness or residue. Then I follow with my serum and moisturizer.
Vitamin Nectar Vitamin C Glow Powder is a 30-second foaming facial that instantly brightens and tightens pores with 20% vitamin C. The powder to foam treatment refines the skin’s texture for a healthy, youthful glow. Enriched with our vitamin fruit complex and supercharged with vitamin C, the invigorating formula creates an effervescent citrus lather that awakens your skin to achieve an amazing glow.
I tear the folded packet to open, pour the powders into on hand, mix with one teaspoon of water to create lather. Then I massage it into the skin for 20-30 seconds and rinse. This, for me, has been a really nice boost to the skin when my skin is feeling dull or lifeless. It gives a beautiful glow and radiance to the skin. The powder to foam formula is amazing and massaging it feels nice on the skin, does not irritates the skin.
Vitamin Nectar Antioxidant Glow Water is a hydrating, fast-drying spray that delivers skin nutrition on the go with a refreshing surge of antioxidant protection for a healthy, dewy glow. The alcohol-free, ultra-fine mist is packed with nutrients to make the skin have the lit-from-within glow. It can be used in three ways, as a cooling primer, makeup-setter, and for an instant refresh.
These three products have been a really nice addition to my skincare routine, I would recommend you to check these out. Black Tea Kombucha Facial Treatment Essence, Vitamin Nectar Vitamin C Glow Powder, and Vitamin Nectar Antioxidant Glow Water are available at Sephora, Sephora.ca, Nordstrom, and nordstrom.com.
